Incorrect onboarding practices lead to aggregation issues, duplicate data points, inaccuracy, and ultimately, loss of stakeholder confidence. Technology has provided analysts with the necessary tools to increase the likelihood of proper data ingestion, but there are still universal principles that should be followed. When you onboard and prep your data correctly the first time, you can leverage your data to its fullest extent. Technology, no matter how sophisticated, should never beat data protocols. This is true of any business intelligence project, and Datorama, now called Marketing Intelligence Cloud, is no exception. In this session, we focus on Data Onboarding. No slides. No jargon. Just an old-fashioned walkthrough of the process using actual data within the platform.
